What is the Census?

The Census determines how much funding our community gets for programs that are critical to young children for the next decade including schools, child care, medical care, food assistance, housing, and public transportation.

Of all U.S. states, California had the highest undercount of children five and under on the 2010 Census. An undercount in 2020 could cost California up to $115 billion per year across federal programs.

Census results help determine how billions of

dollars in federal funding flow into states and

communities each year.


The results determine how many seats

in Congress each state gets.


It’s mandated by the U.S. Constitution in

Article 1, Section 2: The U.S. has counted its

population every 10 years since 1790.

The U.S. Census Bureau is bound by law to protect your answers and keep them strictly confidential. The law ensures that your private information is never published and that your answers cannot be used against you by any government agency or court. Under law, breaking that oath has severe penalties, including a fine up to $250,000, five years in prison, or both.

The Census is charged with counting every single person in the U.S. and will NOT ask about your immigration status or if you are a U.S. citizen.
